    never used him but his reputation is good so I hear. Advertises in Gunmart:-

    Don the Master Stocker .

    You might also speak to Fultons of Bisley as after all they do put together target rifles and do fit stocks. Brian at East Grinstead guns is or was a stocker but I have not seen any of his stock fitting work.

    i think you may find people reluctant to take on this sort of work, as it is a bit of a pain in the bum, also it depends if you want the action as a drop, or if you want it bedded? i would expect you to be looking at 250+ for this job you may find it easier to find a friend with a milling machine and you can have a go at it yourself.

    Cost was not mentioned but it's one reason I did not suggest contacting Ron Wharton of Rigby's who is based at Rusper in Surrey which of course is down south as is the county of Kent. The gentleman who does his stock work charged 1000 for making a stock back in about 1999/2000 and that was just to make and fit the stock and did not cover the cost of the timber.

    I don't mean to be rude, but there is little merit in having the likes of Callum Ferguson spend his very expensive time on a cheap Boyd's stock. You could easily clock up a 300 - 400 bill for inleting a 100 stock on a factory rifle?

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I was enquiring about a stock for a Mannlicher Schoenauer. A double would likely cost a bit more. Ron didn't say who did the work just what it cost.
